After having gone through difficulties with my own church, this particular book piqued my interest. This is an excellent tool to help you determine whether or not your church is in danger of dying. Not only does it give you danger signals but provides steps to keep your church from dying. Very well written and informative. Highly recommended. Cheryl Long.
Very enlightening. I recommended it to a small church trying to grow and they purchased 4 copies for their leaders to read. Life as a pastor's wife, I have been in many of these small dying churches. Wish we had this book years ago.
Autopsy of a Deceased Church: 12 Ways to Kep Yours Alive
October 28, 2015
This is a necessary book for every pastor and one that should get into the hands of every member of a church's leadership team. I decided to get copies for all my leaders and we are taking the year to study through this book at our monthly meetings. The Church is in crisis in North America and Rainer's book sound s aclarion call to action to reverse the onslaught of spiritual decay. It is a "must read" for every pastor, and should also be read by those in the pew.
